In our narcissistic age, it is almost impossible to find anyone interested in the Triune God; most want to know about themselves, how to manipulate God to give them what they want. But this is not that kind of book (thank the Lord), but is centered on Him, on worship from Genesis one to the last two chapters of the Book of Revelation. I’ve had the privilege to know Allen as he has stayed in my home when we invited him to teach some courses at Cranmer Theological House, and he is a man of great faith as well as scholarship. He had just begun his teaching career when I was a student at Dallas Theological Seminary.
Though Ross is one of my favorite super-scholars, he has the deserved reputation for making the complex to be simple. Most technical comments are relegated to the footnotes, and the Hebrew and Greek are transliterated, letter for letter. One can see not only how worship develops but also how it stays the same in core essence from Genesis through the prophets and concluding with worship in the New Covenant, in the early church, and into eternity. One of best works I’ve read on any topic but especially on worship. AMEN. Ὡ
